ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — RSES announced that Ruth Ann Davis, incoming president of Women in HVACR and vice president of Williams Comfort Products, will be the keynote speaker at the 2012 RSES Annual Conference and HVACR Technology Expo

Davis will speak on Thursday, Nov. 15, with a focus on “Making a Difference in a Changing Industry.” During her address, Davis will discuss the challenges the HVACR industry faces from government regulations, changing standards, and economic uncertainty while sharing her “out of the box” thinking that has made her 20-plus years in the industry the most rewarding years of her life.

“RSES is very excited to have Ruth Ann Davis as the keynote speaker this year. In addition to lending a female perspective to a male-dominated industry, her insights working with a manufacturer and serving on the boards and committees for several HVACR associations will prove invaluable to our audience,” said RSES executive vice president Mark Lowry. “With such a variety of experience in leadership roles, Ruth Ann is sure to inspire and motivate those hearing her speak.”

The 75th annual RSES conference will be held in conjunction with the 23rd RSES Annual Mid-Southeast Regional Association Educational Conference, and will take place at the Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, S.C., on Nov. 14-17.
